    No Jersey Selected

    The Bills run defense is terrible while their pass defense is the better of the two. Naturally, I'd expect them to concentrate on stopping the run as they were absolutely gashed last time around, and have often been since.

    He's right about this talking about stopping the run:

    "If we do not handle that, then all of the rest of it is a moot point."

    When you give up over 200 yards on the ground the first time you play the Pats, I would assume that stopping the run would be a bigger priority for the Bills this time around.

    If I remember correctly, the Patriots found a huge exploit running to the left (which I think might have been Anderson's side, not positive). They ran a counter play that went off tackle left and there were HUGE holes almost every time. I have to think the Bills run defense improvement has to start there.

    Giving up 169 yards a game on average. Hopefully Ridley and company keep the trend going.

    Disable Jersey

    Pats run game slashed the Bills, reminiscent of OJ's slashing of the Pats

    I sincerely hope they do.

    Single high safety, 8 in the box all game would be lovely.
